  • Forgotten Gems of Rock and Roll: #1 Record

    21 February 2016 in Heroes -

    One cannot talk about power pop without mentioning their name. By now you probably would have heard of a band called Big Star, but in 1972 it was far from the case. #1 Record was headed for its eponymous place in music history but no one had predicted it to be four decades later. The debut album by Big Star was a commercial failure at the time although, for the reasons I will cite later, the record was ahead of its time.


  • Pioneers of a New Generation: Technicolor

    14 February 2016 in Misc -

    I’d like to take the time to review my friend Leo Vincent’s new album Technicolor, in which I contribute very lightly on its last track as a singer. I believe him to be a very talented songwriter and therefore cannot miss this chance to praise his unbelievable work.


  • DIY in the Studio: Acoustic Panels, Monitor Stands and a Pedalboard

    07 February 2016 in Gear -

    In a constant quest to ameliorate my recordings, I’ve realized that I was missing a most fundamental element that is a sound-treated recording environment. So I decided to build my own acoustic absorption panels and in the same DIY run, two monitor stands and a pedalboard. I will go through my process step-by-step in case anyone decides to do the same. All I can say is that it is way cheaper to buy the materials to make it yourself than buying pre-made sponges to stick on the walls.


  • 10 (Two) or the Rocket Radio

    31 January 2016 in News -

    After a nine month hiatus, I am proud to announce a new project I’ve been working on during this time. A double album titled 10 (read “Two”) that promises enchanting music narrating the adventures of a new protagonist sent into space. The story is set at an age when music has become intergalactic. Each planet in the Solar system has a defined musical genre. As radio stations across planets resonate and pirate spaceships broadcast illegal streaming signals, Earth music loses its identity and popularity against music from other planets.


  • Through the Sextant of the Sailing Ark

    10 May 2015 in News -

    Now is a good time to reflect on the current position of this journey. The Ark lifted its anchor about three months ago and here I am, still navigating through the troubled waves of the sea.
